Is there such a saying? Futile may be either because it will fail or because it is unnecessary / already taken care of. I considered:
too many chefs spoil the broth

and

It's like carrying coals to newcastle

But neither are very good... A formal sounding colloquilism is also ok.

You could use

Or

carrying water to sea

But why not just use "pointless?"

WOMAT (waste of money and time) may do to express that.
